they needed to do something. the first thing you're talking about with mitt romney and foreign policy had been this trip to europe, europe, poland, israel, the olympics hadn't gone so well. now they have something to talk about. how did it go? i think the main difference and what they strive to do is paint a contrast between them and the obama administration. the contrast becomes part of their posturing. how are we going to approach foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of t
given no signal that he's even willing to do more. even romney has talked about providing more support for the rebels but it is not really clear. no one is talking about active intervention on the side of syrian rebels. dagen: is there in reason to believe that president obama would do something while we're trying to get out of afghanistan, do something with syria? >> no, the only thing i would watch for is they do transfer the chemical weapons to hezbollah. i think that's a significant red line. if the assad forces were to do that, i think that would precipitate much bigger crisis and draw from the united states. barring that or major attack on turkey, i think we're in a gruesome ugly stalemate. dagen: for how long? >> it could drag on for a year, two years, yes. connell: we mentioned at the top the impact on the presidential election here in the united states would be. you think it will be kind of status quo through november and beyond. >> i think so. again, providing the rebels with things like shoulder fire missiles that could take down the government's helicopter gunships, that wo
tools for the sears craftsman brand. any time people talk about bain these days, they think of romney, but he has nothing to do with this. >> i looked around for benghazi stuff on the cover of "new york times." >> and you're looking right at the bain story. >> that movie really did cause the whole libya thing. we apologized to libyans for the movie -- >> it was 100% wrong. went on "meet the press." >> they got something about rom ne's message about trade. they're going back and looking at bain's china. >> owns an auto manufacturing outfit in china. how he has a piece of it and they're trying to make a case out of it. >> wants more money. >> any more progress on the tax issue? >> i don't. on the issue of benghazi, though it's unrelated, i told you this earlier. i saw the movie "argo" last night. it's coming out i think later this week. >> i say the previews. >> and it was fantastic. and given what's going on in the middle east and what's going on in the world today, if you have an opportunity to see it, it is worth going for friday night dates. it's hardly a date movie. >> ben affleck
infected. >>> it's been one of the romney campaign's longest running talking points. 43 months of unemployment, over 8%, and the president to blame. >> 8% unemployment for over -- how many, 43 months? we still have unemployment over 8%. he told us to hold unemployment below 8%. >> unemployment above 8% month after month after month. >> but all that changed yesterday. the bureau of labor statistics reporting the unemployment rate falling to 7.8%. where does the romney campaign go from here? i'm joined by a republican spokesman. romney has said the president's policies right-hand turn working and the 8% was an indication of that. what's the response now? >> well, i think clearly the number of americans who are still looking for work, the people -- the work force participation rate is still far, far too high, so i don't think that 7.8% unemployment is something anybody, even the democrats, are cheering about. so i think that the president still clearly has a case to make for why another four years are going to be better under his leadership. >> the democrats would say, as they've
. this is not the recovery we all wanted but we're on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward.
tell you that the mitt romney i know. this is a guy who -- i was talking to a family in massachusetts the other day. cheryl and mark nixon. their kids were hit in a car crash, four of them -- two of them were paralyzed. the romney's did not know that rid the to the same turf but never met before. mitt asked if he did, over christmas. he brought his boys, his wife gives. later on he said, i know you're struggling, mark. don't worry about their college, all paid for it. mitt romney doesn't tell these stories. the nixons told this story. when he told the story, he said it wasn't the help, the cash help, it was that he gave his time and has consistently. this is a man who gave 30% of his income to charity, more than the two of us combined. romney is a good man. he cares about one hatter% of americans in this country. with respect to that i think the vice president knows the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [applause] [laughter] >> but i always say what i mean and so does romney. >> we want to get people out of @rty, in the middle-class. >> luis rodriguez, you're the vice-
. back to melissa and lori. melissa: thank you so much. who will mitt romney choose as secretary treasury if he wins? charlie gasparino has all the details. i am dying of curiosity. charlie: we should point out, look at what one good debate performance does. we were talking about tim geithner stepping down. people thought based on the polls -- melissa: you are killing me speaking now looking at two maybe -- romney. this is called a hit. i get to talk. melissa: i will tell you what a hit is. [laughter] charlie: this is called doing a story. you do not know because you are interrupting me. i would have said it by now if you did not interrupt me. lori: can we guess? here it is. here it is. charlie: kevin borsch -- former fed governor. here is what gives him, i think, it is both a positive and negative. major player during the financial crisis. a close person with bernanke. word close with timothy geithner. that is a positive to some extent. also a negative. melissa: they had a falling out. charlie: let me finish what i am saying here. melissa: we are so excited about the story. charlie: yes,
, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million people have been contacted here in ohio alone. 4 1/2 million. that's more than a third of the overall population. the polls have ticked up. romney has closed the gap, leading in some of the national polls, within the mar i didn't know of error, and in most of the battle ground states, he's either closed the gap and in a couple of cases, gone up by a point or two. these are swings in the polls. he's eliminated any bounce the president had gotten from his convention with the own bounce he got last week. with the vice presidential debate this week and two more presidential debathes and generally both campaigns have recognized for the better part of the last year that this race was always going to hover at a close to even tie, 45-47 apiece and it will be decided probably in the last two weeks to ten days as that la

[applause] >> which we see live where the members of the obama and romney campaign will talk to reporters after the date. we are going to leave the camera into the media center here in a couple of minutes. hundreds of volunteers have been behind the scenes in the media center testing the digital network capacity preparing to cover the debate. >> [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] have been aligned among parts of the data area. the vice presidential debate will be life thursday night on c-span, seized in radio and c-span.org. in addition to the presidential and vice presidential debate, the c-span debate from the house, senate and governor's races from across the country. senator scott brown and his democratic challenger elizabeth warren meet tonight for the third floor debates in the massachusetts senate race. you can hear that live on the companion network c-span at seven eastern tonight. we spoke with a political reporter of the massachusetts senate race. >> we are joined by national journal julie sobel. this is in the
are in poverty, we need to continue to take care of them. as i drew the difference between governor romney and myself, when he talked about those in poverty, i said they haven't chosen to be there. i would not cut our food stamp programs now because we need to make sure those folks can continue to be taken care of. but let's get them a job and get them back to work so families can progress. >> again, this is just about numbers. if you except this tax cut number, the only way to account for it is to have massive cut to these programs that do put people to work and grow jobs and take care people when they are out of work. you have to look at the work i have done. i've committed my life to standing up to the most vulnerable among us. some of the work i do on these issues may be don't get the big headlines. i wrote a piece of legislation, the support of housing investment act, named after a great advocate for anti-homeless this in connecticut that would triple the amount of housing units built for the most vulnerable among us. people have very grave mental illnesses and physical handicaps that
the governors of montana. and later, we talk with david corn about the secret video of mitt romney on tomorrow morning's "washington journal", professor julian selzer talks about the impacts of vice presidential debates in past elections. and executive director of the democratic national campaign committee, guy harrison and >> with what he did on the campaign trail, nothing except her borrow and spend. as a result, not fixing it, our credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. we laid out a 4 trillion-dollar debt reduction plan. we already passed a trillion of it. ladies and gentlemen, these guys don't like anything. they don't only like our plan, but what is your plan? umax thursday, congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden will face off in their only debate. abc news martha radek will moderate and you can watch and and engage with c-span or lack of a preview at 7:00 p.m. eastern, followed by two waste watch the debate at 9:00 p.m. both candidates on screen the entire debate. on c-span2, the multi-version camera debate. live coverage will be on c-span, c-span rad
can you respond if in the back row of the audience mitt romney stood up and said mr. kaplan, you are being defeatist. you are walking away from america's historical role, america is the essential power and you are talking about necessary decline. >> i am not being defeatist. i am being sly. i want american influence to extend long into the decades but it cannot do that bearing the same exact level of burden we have been bearing now. in the middle east we cannot confront russia, cannot confront china and be the hegemon in the greater middle east in leslie. we have to move closer to vladimir putin to balance against china but at the same time not let countries like vietnam and the philippines drag us into a war with china over the south china sea. it is about clever balancing and in any case the u.s. has so much shale oil deposits in texas, louisiana and other places i could name which is about geography that we are going to be because of energy reserves going to be a significant power for decades to come in any case so now is the time to try to get allies and like-minded others to
romney delivers a on foreign policy. this morning at the national press club, chuck schumer talks about tax policy. startingee it's live, at 10:00 a.m. eastern, here on c-span. pac >> c-span gives a great incentive looks into what is happening in washington. whenever that happens, it changes your view. it is different than regular media. it is objective. it shows a lot of what is real and what is going on. i watched hearings and when the senate and house votes, we watch it in the office. also when the supreme court has hearings. watch different decisions and opinions. >> aaron and watches c-span on correct tv -- erin watches c- span on the directtv. >> the human rights campaign, a group advocating equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender americans, held its annual dinner on saturday. headlining the event was newark, new jersey mayor cory booker who talked about what he called the common ancestry shared by both the civil rights and gay rights movements. this is about 30 minutes.

, that recent have increased today. romney is giving a speech. by and large it's not likely this late in the day if there's a war on the scale. to have much of an impact. we haven't talk abouted is how people rank the issues. we do have a couple of issues in the poll about the ranking the issue of rlings in the muslim world and the israel issue. people rank it in the top five, but in an open question, not terms in comparison to other issues if you put in there. an republicans oddly enough, tend to rank a little bit higher than democrats. and maybe that's one thing that romney is doing. what would happen if there is an eltion? obviously, if let's say make a difference between romney and obama on this. i think two points. bill made a good point early on how democrats and republicans are operating out of the two different paradigms about the relationship with muslim countries. and you can see in public opinion. the constituencies -- they see it more a civilization that is complex. it is per vai stiff it you -- pervasive. there is a philosophical difference the constituent separate from -- second, i
believe government is a hindrance. but it seems to me people talk about cutting spending. then, of course, when it comes to their actual program, they don't want to cut. we had even the example of governor romney recently suggesting that if we went off the fiscal cliff and we had the spending cuts in defen it was going to kill jobs in virginia. virginia. i mean, you know. it was a program we didn't cut. >> that's we need leadership from the top as governor in gaza. and i will point back into the governors. successful governors do two things really well. they provide leadership and they propose bold initiatives to their legislatures, and they also have a strategy or a blueprint, if you will, for economic growth in their states for the future. those are the successful governors. we need the same type of leadership at the white house. >> no president has had real organization authority since ronald reagan. i would think that needs to come back. i would go so far as to put some back of authority that was lost after the nixon era. but congress has got to help. some committees in congress are n
